Casey Abrams and Ryan Seacrest after the Judge’s save

All three judges Randy Jackson, Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez unanimously agreed that Casey Abrams, the contestant who received the least number of votes after the top 11 performance night deserved to be saved and given a chance to sing another week. Casey shared the bottom three with fellow contestants, Thia Megia and Stefano Langone. Online American Idol expert were predicting an Haley Reinhart elimination I guess they got it completely wrong this time and it’s for the better because I still don’t understand why so many people on the internet dislike her and even the judges give her a hard time. These same experts however correctly predicted that Thia and Stefano would both be in the bottom three.

Now you see why some people think he’s scary

Casey Abrams has had health issued that caused him to be hospitalized not once but twice during the season, he even missed a show. Casey is also known for being called “sexy” by Jennifer Lopez and for his growling!

Casey Abrams suffers from ulcerative colitis. Many idol fans seem to dislike Casey because of his appearance, he has a seemingly unkept beard.

While I don’t agree with the judges I can understand the appeal for Casey.

Carly Smithson with Cirque du Soleil

Is it me or was that Carly Smithson in the audience on the top 12 night and Ryan Seacrest did not even acknowledge her. It seems to me that Ryan Seacrest totally snubbed Carly Smithson that night.

Cirque du Soleil Carly Smithson

Carly Smithson was a contestant on American Idol season 7, she finished in 6th position.

In an interview last year Carly said that she not only keeps in touch with other season 7 contestants but she also regularly meets with Brooke White for lunch, they are best friends now. She even went to one of David Cook’s concerts in Palm Springs and went on stage with him to sing Barracuda.

We Are the Fallen and Cirque du Soleil

A year after appearing on the show Carly joined Evanescence co-founder Ben Moody with John LeCompt and rock Gray to form the band “We Are the Fallen”. They released their first album “Tear the World Down” in May 2010. The album includes the song “Bury Me Alive” that Carly co-wrote.
